InnoDB is a very popular database engine for the MySQL relational database management system. It is an alternative to the default MyISAM engine and it has got numerous strengths that have made it the engine of choice for numerous PHP script-powered applications, such as Joomla and Magento, which have switched over to InnoDB permanently. For example, importing huge amounts of data will be faster with InnoDB, due to the fact that it locks only one row to execute a given operation, not the entire table, which makes the engine ideal for scalable apps. InnoDB also supports foreign keys and transactions – these refer to the manner in which the information is treated. Simply put, adding new or modifying existing data will either be entirely completed, or will be aborted and the procedure will be rolled back in case a given problem occurs in the meantime, therefore the content that remains in the database won’t be lost.
InnoDB in Cloud Web Hosting
InnoDB is offered with all our Linux cloud web hosting by default, not upon request or as a paid upgrade, so you’ll be able to activate and run any open-source script-driven app that needs the MySQL storage engine without having to deal with any impediment once you open your shared account. InnoDB will be selected automatically as the default engine for a specific MySQL database during the app activation, regardless of whether you use our single-click installer or create the database and set up the app manually, as long as the application requires InnoDB instead of the more popular MyISAM engine. We’ll keep daily backups of all your MySQL databases, so you can be sure that you won’t ever lose any data if you delete a database by accident or you overwrite some crucial information – you just have to inform us and we will restore everything back to normal.
InnoDB in Semi-dedicated Hosting
InnoDB comes with all our Linux semi-dedicated hosting by default, so once you obtain a new semi-dedicated account, you can go ahead and install any PHP-driven web app that requires this database storage engine. A number of engines are pre-installed on our cloud website hosting platform, so when you set up a brand-new MySQL database and begin installing an app manually, or opt to use the Hepsia hosting Control Panel-integrated app installer tool, the engine for the database will be chosen based on the requirements of the app in question. This will permit you to install and manage InnoDB-specific apps without needing to cope with any complication and without the need to update any settings in your account. To avoid any risk, we will always have a 1-week-old backup of all your databases, so if you delete or change any content by mistake, we can quickly retrieve it.
InnoDB in VPS Web Hosting
All Linux VPS web hosting that are ordered with the Hepsia Control Panel come with InnoDB already activated, so you’ll be able to run any open-source script-based application that needs this database storage engine without the need to install anything manually. You can select Hepsia on the VPS order page and your brand-new Virtual Private Server will be up and running within 1 hour, so you can log in and begin creating your sites right away. When you create a brand-new MySQL database and begin the app installation process, our system will set the engine for that database automatically. In this way, you can activate different applications at the same time without having to change anything on the VPS server. You can create a WordPress-powered online blog that uses MyISAM – the default MySQL engine, and a Magento-based e-commerce portal that uses the InnoDB engine, for instance.
InnoDB in Dedicated Servers Hosting
Our Hepsia Control Panel is one of the options that you can choose on the order page when you purchase a dedicated server from us. Since this is the most powerful kind of website hosting, it’s very likely that you will manage very popular websites that will attract a lot of visitors, and since InnoDB is one of the best choices for such Internet sites, we will enable it together with all the other software applications that are offered with a Hepsia-managed server. If you create a brand new MySQL database in your dedicated account, there won’t be any activated database storage engine till you start installing an open-source script, whether manually through your Internet browser or using the automatic scripts installation tool that is available in the hosting Control Panel. The necessary engine will be recognized automatically and will be set for the database in question, so you can run scripts that need InnoDB, as well as ones that require MyISAM – the default MySQL engine, without having any obstacle.
